Our Next Novena Together: The St. Therese Novena!

New here? Join us in prayer! Click here to get novena reminders by email!

The next novena we’re going to pray as a community is one of our favorites, it’s the St. Therese of Lisieux Novena!

Pope Pius X called St. Therese “the greatest saint of modern times.” She’s well known for her “little way” spirituality of doing small, ordinary things that you do every day with extraordinary love. She wrote in her autobiography, “What matters in life is not great deeds, but great love.”

We will start praying this novena next Tuesday, September 22nd.

St. Therese suffered a great deal in her life. She lost her mom when she was a young girl. One of her older sisters became like a second mother to her, and St. Therese “lost” her when her sister entered a convent. St. Therese also suffered from chronic illness and depression. Through it all, she continued to look towards Jesus.

She’s a great example for all of us — a reminder to cling to Jesus through whatever each of us may be going through right now. Let’s look to Jesus!

One of Our Favorite Novenas: for Marriage & Family!

We don’t usually send out two emails on the same day, but we wanted to let you know about the next novena — it’s one of our favorites (you can scroll down to read why), and we’ll start praying it just a few days after we finish the current Novena to St. Monica.

The next novena is The Novena for Marriage and Family! We start praying on Sunday, August 30th.

St. John Paul II said, “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live,” so it’s really important that we pray for marriages and families to be strengthened and sanctified.

We will pray for those who are already married, for those who want to be married, for families going through difficult times, and for those in financial distress.

There’s something extra special about this novena… It leads up to the Feast of Mary’s Birthday (the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary)!

The first time we prayed this novena together as a community was eight years ago, leading up to our wedding day! It has been such a gift to pray with you :)

And it is so important that we have strong marriages and strong families. So, we are really looking forward to praying this novena once again, for Marriages and for Families!

This novena begins on August 30th!

Thank you for praying with us! We’re praying for you.

God bless you!

The Next Novena: St. Monica

We start praying the next novena together, The St. Monica Novena, on August 18th!

St. Monica is most known for her intercessory prayers for those who have fallen away from the faith, as she prayed for the conversion of her son for 15 years.

She is also the patron saint of alcoholics, married women, mothers, wives, and difficult marriages, as well as the patron saint of those who have been abused.

You can ask for her prayers for any intention you have — especially for the ones you have been praying about for a long time. Those seem to be her specialty ;)

Talks to help you heal, move forward and grow closer to Christ

St. John Paul II said that suffering is almost inseparable from man’s earthly existence. At times, suffering can lead you closer to Christ. And at other times, it can seem to lead you further away from Him.

We’ve been working on our next online retreat to help steer you closer back to Him, who is the Divine Healer.

It’s called The Pray More Healing Retreat!

It’s like a do-it-yourself retreat, but you’re not doing alone — we’re doing it with you!

We hope you’ll join us. 🙏 🤗🙏

You can learn more, see all the topics, watch a preview, and sign up for the retreat at praymoreretreat.org

Here are the Healing Retreat Speakers:

You can look through all the topics they’re covering here.

The retreat begins on August 5th!

One of our Favorite & Most Popular Novenas: The St. Anne Novena!

A little more than ten years ago, John-Paul was single.

Little did he know… I was praying a novena, asking God to help me meet my future husband. Now, John-Paul & I are married and coming up on our eighth wedding anniversary! 

And the next novena we’re praying together is the one I prayed all those years ago: the St. Anne Novena!

We will start praying on July 17th! That’s this Friday.

St. Anne is the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Jesus. She is a very powerful intercessor! 

You may have heard that those discerning marriage often pray to St. Anne for help in finding a spouse. But, St. Anne is also known to intercede for people for almost any request, and especially for healing.

You could also ask for her intercession for your marriage, for your grandparents or grandchildren, to grow in holiness and patience. You can ask her to pray for whatever it is that’s on your heart, she will bring your intentions to Jesus!

We hope you will join us in praying this novena! We will be praying for you and your intentions throughout the novena.

Answered Prayers from The Pentecost Novena 2020

Thank you for joining us in praying the Holy Spirit Novena for Pentecost!

If you’ve had any of your prayers answered throughout this novena, please share those with us all below!

We will continue to pray for you and your intentions. Please do not give up on hope. God is with you! He is for you!

The Next Novena to the Holy Spirit for Pentecost!

We’re excited to announce that the next novena we’re praying is the original novena!

Novenas are an ancient tradition that goes back to the days of the Apostles.

Jesus told His disciples to pray together after His ascension into heaven, so they went to an upper room along with the Blessed Virgin Mary, (Acts 1:14) and joined constantly in prayer for nine days.

These nine days of constant prayer by the Apostles at the direction of Jesus led up to Pentecost. This is when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples as “tongues of fire” (Acts 2:1-4). This pattern of 9 days of prayer is the basis of the novenas we pray today!

Thus, the novena is an imitation of the Lord’s command to the Apostles when they prayed for 9 days in anticipation of the coming of the Holy Spirit.

And that’s why we pray all of our novenas for nine days, followed by one final prayer on the 10th day (which is usually the feast day).

So maybe you can guess by now that the next novena we’re praying is The Novena to the Holy Spirit for Pentecost!

You can share your prayer intentions in the comments below :)

The Holy Spirit plays a BIG part in our lives.

So, as we pray, ask the Holy Spirit for something concrete and measurable. 

We will start praying on Friday, May 22nd.

Your friends & family can sign up HERE.

We’re looking forward to praying with you and for you! 
God bless you!
